SubjectRe: Multithreaded TCP/IP stack

I have been told by multiple software venders (and from sun) that

your software spends almost all it's time in the stack
(router/firewall/load balancing/other low level stuff) buying a
SMP box gains you very little performance. I tend to believe this
as these are the folks who would be selling the more expensive
SMP box if it was better :-)

I don't know if this is true -- but under high network load, Solaris
(2.6) does appear to perform better than Linux 2.2.x last time I
looked into this.
